Yo.

Driving and messing with Fords has been in my bones from birth, with my old fella always buying, selling or fixing one. I can remember changing the engine in a fiesta at the tender age of 14.

I've got a 55 Plate Mondeo Titanuim X 2.2 Tdci as the family car, and absolutely love it when i can get the Mrs out of it.

My second car changes quite regularly to be honest. I'll buy either a write-off or something that needs a big repair and mess with it before running it for a couple of months then get bored and need a new project.

Latest project is an 06 Plate Fiesta Zetec 1.6 Tdci with a bit of back end damage. Just waiting for that back from the bodyshop, where hopefully they'll pull their finger out and paint it this week!

Been meaning to join a Ford forum for ages.

Well I drove it to the Bodyshop a few weeks ago and was quite impressed with how nippy it was to be honest. I don't wanna do anything ridiculous, as I like to keep them in good original condition, but I was thinking of maybe a tuning box. Saying that, I've got no experience of them. I've got a mate at work who's got a 06 reg focus 1.8 tdci with a full ST replica conversion done (an excellent job - seats, dash, everything) and his has gone one on. I've driven it with and without and can definitely feel a diference.

Welcome to the forum Tom,

If you get a moment join photobucket and upload some images of your motor's, You can then edit to remove your reg plate etc. Then copy the .img code from each image uploaded and paste it on to a post in the forum or many forums for the image to display. You may also like to log on to DMB Graphics for some Gel badge overlays to fit over your existing blue ford badges: http://www.dmb.uk.co...es-gel-overlays

If you get the time, it would be great to see a progress thread for the fiesta.

You may also like to browse my list guides all linked below this post, most of the guides are available in PDF format to download and print aswell as viewing online.
